<p>The authors explain how to use reliability models to determine how much system testing to do and how to allocate resources among the components to be tested. They begin by discussing the basic concepts of software reliability. They examine the functions, presuppositions, and basic procedures of system testing, as well as testing comparison and the use of calendar-time component to predict when testing will be completed. They then discuss acceptance testing. The authors conclude with examples of actual applications.</p>
